ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502 Glacier Blue

We’re here at Genting right now to report that yes – ASUS is collaborating with a local fashion brand, Kittie Yiyi, to present the new VivoBook Ultra A412 and A512 alongside with the VivoBook Ultra K403 to the world.

These laptops have their own unique points hence differentiating them from each other and from the competition as well. Let’s take a brief look at what they each have to offer.

ASUS ZenBook 14 AMD

ASUS VivoBook Ultra A412 & A512

These two laptops are from the same series and they both are packed with a massive screen in a tiny laptop body. They both have more or less the same core specs too – an Intel Core i5-8265U processor with an NVIDIA GeForce MX250. Surprisingly, it’s quite powerful and able to play some games too. It is also able to handle esports title nicely.

These two laptops are thin and lightweight yet packs a punch. Essentially, they are ultrabooks-like laptops without the ultrabook tax. They also come in 4 different colors which are bright and shining with brilliance – Transparent Silver, Slate Grey, Peacock Blue, and also Coral Crush.

We have also reviewed the VivoBook Ultra A512 which can be found here.

ASUS VivoBook Ultra A512 Coral Crush

Honestly, I’m looking forward to the Coral Crush color. Its displays are huge for its footprint, thanks to the NanoEdge bezels. Not only that, ASUS has built the ErgoLift hinge into these laptops as well. They are really comfortable to type on and definitely bliss for long usage times.

For the full list of specs, they are as below. The prices for both these laptops are RM2,899.

ASUS VivoBook Ultra K403

In another addition to the VivoBook Ultra series is the K403. Instead of boosting an insane level of performance for its footprint, ASUS opted to do some fine-tuning. By removing some hardware that many people won’t even use while on the go (e.g. dedicated GPU), ASUS doubled the battery capacity.

With this adjustment made, ASUS claims that the VivoBook Ultra K403 can run for up to 24 hours straight. That’s 24 hours of non-stop usage – and I really want to know how in the world ASUS achieve this.
